How to create a stunning map using Photoshop and Google Maps
In the last few years, Google Maps has been upgraded to support the new Google Maps API, allowing you to add features like geo-located landmarks and city names.
It also allows you to embed maps on your website, which is great if you need to make a navigation bar on your webpage, or if you’re planning to use your website as a hub for your business.
We created a map with the ability to create custom geolocation features that are only available in Google Maps.
We named the map, ‘Nerd City’.
It’s not the only map we’ve created with this map feature, but it’s one of our favorites.
You can check out our ‘Nerds City’ map below.
